Friends of the Book of Deer

The “Friends” was set up to reach out to people who have an interest in the Book and may have a particular expertise which will help in putting it before a wider audience, or just manning the Visitors Centre once or twice during the summer.

The “Friends” have organised 32 seminars over a nine year period. Each one dealt with a particular aspect of the Book of Deer. The Seminars are held in the University Chaplaincy in Old Aberdeen at around 3pm on a Thursday in November and February and Aden park in September and at the A.G.M. in May.

We are now 74 in number, but would welcome anyone, anywhere, who has an interest in the Book of Deer, even if they feel they have no great skill or knowledge to contribute. It is a great way to keep in touch with our heritage here in the North East of Scotland.
